Changing Minds and the BackFire Effect

Changing Minds and the BackFire Effect

I Couldn’t Believe!

I remember a few years ago when talking to a chiropractor, he told me about John of God from Brazil.  John of God is a healer who channels many spirit guides to commit a huge range of medical miracles.  The chiropractor told me that John of God attracts thousands of people from all over the world.  He told me about the experience, how he had to wait in long lines to see him.  He described the “visible operation” he had chosen, and told me that he had been cured.   The story seemed so beyond my belief system that I developed an unfavorable view of this chiropractor.   I was so uncomfortable with the story that I wanted to roll my eyes and run away.   I kept my distance from him (for other reasons as well) after that.

This isn’t the only time I’ve run from information presented to me.  I rolled my eyes at the Law of Attraction for years!  And when someone told me in the early 90’s that physicians had done a hemispherectomy on a child, and that it wasn’t expected to result in serious consequences, again, I rolled my eyes, and decided that he was rather naive.

I’m not the only one that runs from information that falls outside of their belief systems!

Debunking the Myth that there is No Science Behind Energy Medicine

Debunking the Myth that there is No Science Behind Energy Medicine

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that there is no science behind energy medicine.   There has been tons of research coming from David Feinstein, Ph.D.  Dawson Church, Ph.D., Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dean Radin, Ph.D., and many others, demonstrating the power of energy medicine.   But despite this, there are still many who seem glued to the idea that energy medicine is not evidence based.

One of the leading contributors to this myth is Wikipedia.  Many of its arguments used to claim there is no science to support energy medicine come from the lab of one researcher, Edzard Ernst, Ph.D.

What to Say to the Skeptics of Energy Medicine

What to Say to the Skeptics of Energy Medicine

When I first realized the power of energy medicine, I was working in a psychology department, and I tried to persuade a professor that Emotional Freedom Technique worked. So, he let me work with him on his neck pain, and it went from a pain level of 4/10 to 0/10 in minutes.   But was he convinced? I don’t think so. What I do know was that it made him very uneasy, and he began to distance himself from me.

I’ve had a couple of other experiences where I’ve either helped experts in mental health or Western medicine heal from injuries, and even though we’d been close for months, they stopped returning my calls.

Why?
